For me, the most interesting element of tiny, structured bags like the Lanvin Madame Lanvin Shoulder Bag and Lanvin Runway Tortoise Shoulder Bag is the discipline required to carry one.

When a bag is as popular as the Celine Luggage Tote, it’s only logical that other brands will try to stand in the reflected glow of the design’s success by debuting bags that share certain characteristics with the one that everyone wants.
Friday, you are here!! That means fist pumps and party time, or in my case shopping, movies, and long walks. Either way, TGIF to all PurseBlog readers. I wanted to end this week on a light note, with the clever yet hilarious Lanvin Fall-Winter 2012 Ad Campaign video.
After Fall 2010’s onslaught of fuzzy purses, I hoped against hope that fur bags would be a single-season trend and that when cold weather rolled around again, we would have forgotten all about them. Unfortunately, the advent of the first Fall 2011 pre-orders has made my hopes look like nothing more than pipe dreams.
The footwear enthusiasts among you may remember that I was extremely enthusiastic about Lanvin’s Spring 2011 shoes when they showed in Paris last October. The hard-edged (literally and) figuratively industrial futurism of the collection felt interesting and directional back then, and it still does now with the advent of Lanvin’s Fall 2011 handbags.
I’ve been thinking about luggage ever since we talked about that Jimmy Choo shoe case earlier in the week, and that the Lanvin Amalia Voyage Leather Suitcase should show up on Net-a-Porter right now is nothing short of fortuitous. I maybe have been a bit of a party-pooper when it came to the aforementioned shoe luggage, but I can’t help but swoon over all this luscious Lanvin lambskin.
Admittedly, I have a very strong stomach when it comes to the thought of potentially ruining one of my handbags. Not only am I desensitized to their presence because of my job, but I wholeheartedly believe that they are functional objects and meant to be used as such, and even with proper care, most will wear out eventually and need to be retired.
